I went to the Dell site since I bought my computer from them and wanted to see if I could fix a read problem with my CD-RW / DVD combo drive. I had a read issue where cds would be recognized and burned but DVDs would just keep spinning. Anyways, I downloaded the new firmware from the site, copied it to floppy and booted my computer with it. At about 34% there was a bad data error. Now my drive isn't even seen by Windows. Luckily I have another drive that I was able to bring back since it was plug and play but I can't get my old one to work since I misplaced my XP cd key. I have an old working harddrive with all of the same programs and configuration. Is there any way to copy the firmware files from that haddrive to my new one?
